  • Though your hair is all in tangles
    And your makeup is a mess
    Most of what you're drinking
    Is spilling down your dress

    And to keep from falling off
    Your barstool's 'bout
    All that you can do
    I'll make my proposition
    'Cause I'm just as drunk as you

    Let's do something cheap and superficial
    Let's do something that we might regret
    Let's do something shabby and insensitive
    This might be the only chance we get

    You got lipstick showing on your teeth
    And a run down your hose
    Where you got that cheap perfume
    God only knows

    Now I'll be glad to have you home
    Long before daylight
    The sun is your worst enemy
    Thank God it's dark tonight

    [Repeat chorus]

    This might be the only chance we get
